I've been a hobbyist builder for a number of years now and always looking to improve (or learning the right way! LOL)

- What are some of your techniques for mixing epoxy for a small build, like a few clubs or a driver adapter.

Thanks in advance!

I add a tiny amount of marble powder or micro iron filings.
Unsure if this strengthens the bond but the epoxy hardens out much better than without.
It also prevents dripping.

I save and rinse the tops off pop and water bottles. They are a perfect size for mixing small batches.

Should be adequate for using one to two drops of mixed epoxy for each of the inside of the hodel and to coat the tip.  Depending on the mix ratio and how many sticks to epoxy, just eye ball the mixture.

If a dispensing nozzle from a squeeze bottle is not working then use a Popsicle stick ( old screw driver ) to scoop out the small amount onto a mixing surface.  A little let over is good , to keep and gauge the curing ( give or take a few hours more for the curing inside the hosel than exposed to air ).

Unless the fitting of the shaft to hosel is loose, never use glass beads or other foreign object in the epoxy mixture ( it'll weaken the mixture bonding ).

A pair of 4 oz. 1-1 ratio epoxy will last a hobbyist several years if stored properly.

Same as above. I just a small piece of cardboard and a long tee. Only mix enough to do about three clubs at a time. Then I know the epoxy is still easily workable. Using an old piece of cardboard lets me see when the epoxy hardens. I use the 24 hour type and typically after an hour or two the clubs can be safely moved.

I use old poster board. Some cardboards leave paper shavings in the epoxy. Small popsicle sticks for the mix.

I think the OP is asking about the actually technique of mixing not what we use to mix. The technique i use is fold and swirl. If you just swirl sometimes one of the mixes just gets pushed to the outer. Folding ensures incorporation.

Personally I use a cardboard and a stick... when I go to starbucks I load up on the wooden stirring sticks!  I generally use piece of cardboard that has a smoother surface or printed with a gloss coating.

I like the idea of the water bottle covers, love it!

Thanks guys keep em coming.

Two strips of 2" masking tape side by side on the work bench and half a popsicle stick. Take the top of a Sharpie and draw two circles next to each other in the middle of the tape. Assuming a 50/50 hardener/resin mix, fill both circles. Mix. Use the popsicle stick to cover the shaft tip and into the hosel of the club (or adapter). By using tape, when you peel it off the table, you can get a feel for stiffness. Go to a larger round item if gluing up more than 2 clubs (you'll get a feel as to how much epoxy you generate with the sharpie top once you've done it a couple of times). Oh, use some acetone to wipe the popsicle stick after the shaft/club or adapter is starting to dry for reuse (if you eat a lot of popsicles, no need).

Never use too little.  The smaller the batch, the more likely you can make a mistake in ratio.  I will usually mix double what I need as I always want some left over in the pan so that I can verify that the epoxy cured properly.

I lay down beads of equal length and thickness if I am not using a epoxy gun.  That way you can easily do a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio.  Mixing is done by folding the epoxy in from the sides to the center and scraping right down to the bottom of the pan (I use a flat piece of cardboard) so that nothing is left behind and not mixed in.  Repeat until you are sure it is well mixed and then do it some more.

Ditto on the equal length beads.  I mix with a small flathead screwdriver that I can then insert into the hosel to line it with epoxy.  After I set the club(s) down to cure, wipe off the screwdriver head and I'm good to go!

I will add, IF and only IF you know the densities of the epoxy, you can use an accurate gram scale to measure out the quantities.  Do not assume the 10ml of hardener and 10ml of resin weigh the same because they don't.

I steal stir sticks from Starbucks. They are perfect- thin, long, wooden, and flexible.  Best thing i have found to physically mix.

I've also heard of peoplw using those little clear volumetric med cups for mixing. Very easy to add 5ml of 1 and 5 no of the other.

One reason I hate using the little mixing cups is that you can easily pour too much of one.  Now how do you estimate how much?  Far easier to lay down some lines.  Or better yet, buy the epoxy gun and never have that problem.

Yeah I use a plunger. I had also used the line technique when is it larger bottles.

I use an old Golf Digest/Golf magazine and a mixing stick.  The magazine pages are glossy and so the epoxy does not absorb any oils from the paper.  I do the fold n stir being careful not to introduce air bubbles into the mix. Normally try to match epoxy volume by the size of a quarter depending on what I'm doing. I have been using shafting beads for the past six months based on what I've read here; also watched my club guy use beads for ping irons...

The caps on the "two barrel" tour set epoxy are absolute rubbish. You had better have a acetone rag to thoroughly wipe both the cap and end before you put back in place, and have a marker mark which side lines up.


And even then, the stuff gets into crevices and can make the cap difficult.

Post it note pad and toothpicks. When done just remove that note and ready for the next time. I use good quality toothpicks and some of the cheaper ones wil break to easily.

I mix on a piece of Lexan and use a chop stick. Using the chop stick lets me mix the epoxy easily and apply the epoxy down in the hosel.

I use old pieces of junk mail that have a nice laminated finish to them so the epoxy doesn’t soak in or stick. Then, I take q-tips and cut one tip end off of four or five. I bend two of them about 30 degrees at the other end and use those to scrape up and collect the mixture. I use the gun for shafting epoxies so I always dispense the proper amount of components.   I fold in and gather up the two components then gather and mix until the timer on my microwave or phone runs for 3 minutes.   Then I think about stoichiometry and reactions from general and o-chem and my 15 years in a research lab, and I mix for another minute or two. Then I try to convince myself that five minutes of mixing is enough to put each molecule of the two parts in proper condition to react/polymerize, and I contemplate the disappointment of having a build fail due to incomplete mixing. Then I heat in the microwave for a few seconds to get the party started, and mix a little more. Then I open a suitable IPA and contemplate the whole situation again. Then I shaft by using another qtip to lightly coat the inside of the hosel and then the shaft tip, then I put an excess on the tip and install. Clean up, wait, turn ferrule and play.

I use cardboard and a craft stick from WalMart.  I pour two lines of epoxy (Part A&B) side by side, add some glass beads and then stir it thoroughly.  I leave the stick and leftover epoxy/carboard on the workbenck until cured so I can have a look the next day.  Been working for me for a few decades.

I use an old Golf Digest/Golf magazine and a mixing stick.  The magazine pages are glossy and so the epoxy does not absorb any oils from the paper.  I do the fold n stir being careful not to introduce air bubbles into the mix. Normally try to match epoxy volume by the size of a quarter depending on what I'm doing. I have been using shafting beads for the past six months based on what I've read here; also watched my club guy use beads for ping irons...

I also mix on old golf magazines...the gloss on the pages mix smooth and I just tear that page out and I've got a clean one ready to go.

I save the cardboard from golf ball boxes - cut them into rectangles.  I then use coffee mixing sticks from Starbucks or wherever.  Insert the shaft while holding over the cardboard so anything dripping down goes right back onto the mix board.  Use the stick to scrape excess (also onto the board), then a rag or paper towel to clean the rest.

I use duct tape (one or two strips depending on tamount to mix) on a board or anything flat.  Mix with a small stick.  Have a roll of toilet paper handy for cleanup.   Leave glue and stick to dry for proof of epoxy.  Peel off tape and throw in bin next day.
